Frequently Asked Questions… with Andrew Levy

Instead of that updated batch of intros which you so richly deserve, I can but offer this—a FAQ with everyone's favorite ombudsman, Andy! Now with more Latin!

IT'S JUST WORDPLAY: What's with the kittens?

Andrew Levy: I don't know what that means. What's with YOU?

What was with the shirt change in between halftime and post-game a couple weeks ago?

I knew you needed questions for this FAQ.

What's the most rewarding part of being an ombudsman?

After each show, when Greg says, "Good job, Good work Andy, I'll most likely kill you in the morning."

Do you know the definition of ombudsman?


Is it true your nickname is "The Punnisher?"

Quid est veritas?

Did you give yourself that nickname?

Nemo tenetur seipsum accusare.

How did you get involved with the show?

We were introduced at a party by Dat Ho, who was Greg's Vietnamese houseboy at the time, and we hit it off. We went to dinner a few days later - it turned out we both love a little Italian. (In my case, Marty Scorsese.)

Do you get nervous before you go on air?

It depends - how much have I had to drink?

What color is Greg's basement?

Before or after?

Is Alison your favorite?

It's okay I guess - I'm not a huge Elvis Costello fan. Though I do like the album he did with Allen Toussaint. Since you asked, I am a huge Radiohead fan, though.

No, Alison Rosen, you asshole!

I don't see "surnames." Or the South American Republic of "Suriname." Luckily I'm not in the market for bauxite, so this isn't as huge a deal as you might think.

Anything else you wish I'd asked?
